The small harbour of Kraljevica lies at the SE end of the Bakarski Zaljev (bay of Bakar), a two-mile long inland basin situated four miles SE of the commercial port of Rijeka on the mainland coast of Croatia and two miles N of the island of Krk. The harbour, little more than a deep cove, has a number of private moorings around its quays which may be able to be used with permission by a cruising yacht. Its south side is taken up by a commercial shipyard. Shelter is reasonable in most conditions, although fierce gusts will be experienced in a bora. The cove is open NW and strong winds from this direction would probably make it very uncomfortable and possibly untenable.

The S side of the cove is taken up by the large commercial shipyard. Private yacht moorings extend around the E and N side, one of which may be available for a cruising yacht to use. All moorings are equipped with pickup buoys. Alternatively, it may be possible to lay alongside or do an anchor moor to the quay W of the moorings if there is space.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs



The cove is too small to anchor off, except towards the entrance, where depths are great and shelter is not good. In settled weather, Bakar is a better anchorage.
